Happy Birthday, Mommy!

Today is my mom's birthday. Caden and I just called her to wish her a great day, and at the end of our message I said, "Mom, I'm so thankful for the day God brought you into this world."

Mom, I am so grateful that God chose you to be my mom. You have helped carry my burdens, eased my fears, been my biggest cheerleader and prayer warrior. You have wiped away my tears or jumped for joy beside me every step of the way. You've offered your support and unconditional love in tangible ways when I've needed it most. You've said the hard things when they needed to be said and been a truth-teller when I'd have rather lived in denial. You've been my best and greatest teacher. You've been my mentor, my friend, my confidant.
And so today, on this very special 28th day of April, we wish our wonderful mom and Nanna a great Birthday. You deserve it. : )
